This well-appointed home is walking distance to downtown Victoria, the Inner Harbour, Craigdarroch Castle, Victoria Art Gallery and a lovely stroll to Cook Street Village and the beach. We are central and convenient to all downtown amenities.
The house boasts 3000 sq ft of comfortable west coast living over three storeys and five bedrooms.
The main floor has the two bedrooms (queen beds) and a sunny open-concept living space with a kitchen, sun room, dining room and living room with electric fireplace and a huge skylight. This floor is ideal for visiting, relaxing, watching TV and cooking big meals. Our kitchen is stocked with everything one would need and the dining room table has many leaves to seat up to twelve people.
The top floor is the master bedroom with a king size bed plus ensuite with tub. It has two skylights and a calm and peaceful feel to it. There is a collapsible playpen available for use. It is very private from the rest of the house.
The lower floor is a 1.5 bedroom self-contained suite. It has a full kitchen and bathroom (standing shower), TV and laundry. There is a queen size bed in the main room and a double bed in the small bedroom. There is also a double pullout sofa in the living room.This small bedroom has an access door to the back patio, so perfect for smokers (no smoking inside the house, of course) or someone coming and going late at night. This lower suite has 6’4” ceilings with 6" beams (guests should be under 5'10" staying down here) and laminate flooring. It sleeps four plus pullout sofa.
There is a wonderful sun room that catches afternoon and evening sun. There are two rocking chairs plus two twin beds. This is the best room for sleeping during fair-weather months, but it isn't insulated so there isn't any heat. There are also some kids toys.
The backyard is private and is equipped with a Webber BBQ, a fire pit and a patio plus chairs for lounging. This is ideal for large gatherings and has been very well-reviewed.
The backyard is fenced. We have a huge school field beside us, great for playing a game of basketball, frisbee, kicking the soccer ball around or enjoying the sunset.
Wireless internet, laundry, four car driveway (five in a pinch), very clean, ideal location for those wanting to be close to all the amenities. Private backyard for sunny afternoons and relaxing. Bus stop across the street.
It is not only a great vacation spot, it can also be a comfortable temporary home for those on the road. Perfect for longer stays and entertaining.
Great space for some music, BBQ, privacy and central location.
